Our approach The Association Charter Working team

Introduction

The idea of building a repository of migrant testimonies first originated within the framework of the Asinitas Association and, from 2008 onwards, became an official offshoot of the Confini (“Borders”) Project supported by lettera27 Foundation.  In January 2012, the Archive of migrant memories established its own Charter as an autonomous Association for the Promotion of Social Development (APS).
AMM brings together a group of migrant and non-migrant volunteers, researchers, and media operators committed to a participatory method in recording current migratory processes and registering their traces in the collective heritage of national and transnational memory.  AMM operates at two main levels: research, aimed at documenting and archiving written and oral testimonies, and audiovisuals, aimed at producing audio and video documentaries.
